Hi! I'm Liz, living in Portland but originally from the big, hot state of Texas. I am learning to love the Pacific Northwest, rain and all, and spend lots of my time here working for a local nonprofit. When I'm not doing that, I'm eating at many of portland's amazing restaurants, exploring the hiking trails, seeing bands, cooking, and biking across town (although i'm not one of those hardcore bike in the rain folks). I also love exploring the local swimming holes in the summer! I hope to use Airbnb to aid in the exploration of the great northwest -- forests, mountains, oceans, cities and rivers -- and beyond!
